The forty volumes in this set contain tissue copies of Edison’s 
correspondence for the period February 1887-August 1899. Although there are 
occasional letters in Edison’s hand, most of Edison’s manuscript 
correspondence is in the hand of Alfred O. Tate, John F. Randolph, or 
Thomas Maguire, acting as his secretary. Similarly, the retained copies of 
Edison’s typewritten letters are frequently signed or initialed by one of his 

Many of the letters relate to the manufacture and marketing of Edison’s 
improved phonograph and to legal and financial dealings among the various 
phonograph companies. In addition, there are numerous documents pertaining 
to mining and ore milling and to the operations of Edison’s plant in Ogden, 
N.J. Included also are letters, many addressed to the Edison Machine Works 
and the Edison General Electric Co., regarding Edison’s work on improved 
filaments, meters, and other components of his electric lighting system. Some 
of the documents relate to the business of the Edison Manufacturing Co. and 
to the production and promotion of the Edison-Lalande battery. Other letters 
deal with Edison’s phonoplex system of telegraphy, electric traction systems, 
the mimeograph, and motion pictures. There are many letters addressed to the 
law firm of Dyer & Seely and to Edison’s personal lawyer, Sherburne B. Eaton, 
concerning patent applications, interferences and infringements, and various 
other legal concerns. In addition to the business correspondence, there are 
numerous letters relating to Edison’s personal finances and to family affairs. 

Although the books tend to progress in chronological order, a few books 
contain letters for two discrete time periods. For example, LB-025 covers the 
periods June 1887-January 1888 and August-November 1888. Some of the 
books overlap in their coverage. LB-053, for example, contains letters for a 
two-year period also covered by five other letterbooks. There are no 
letterbooks covering the period June 17, 1892-February 3, 1893. 

Approximately 30 percent of the letters have been filmed. All substantive 
letters pertaining to Edison’s business operations and to his personal affairs 
have been filmed. The following categories of documents have not been filmed: 
routine letters of transmittal or acknowledgement; non-substantive 
correspondence concerning the ordering and shipment of materials; letters 
about routine financial transactions; routine or repetitive responses to letters 
from individuals seeking employment, requesting advice, and offering advice; 

responses to other unsolicited correspondence. In addition, the index at the 
beginning of each book has not been filmed. 

Also not filmed are most letters relating to the phonoplex system, an 
operation in which Edison was only tangentially involved. Most of the 
phonoplex items on the microfilm pertain to operations on the Pennsylvania 
Railroad. For a discussion of the case-study approach used in the selection of 
these documents, see the targets preceding the various "Telegraph - Phonoplex" 
folders in the Document File. 

Although every technical effort has been made to ensure the legibility 
of the documents on the microfilm, most of the books contain some pages that 
are very difficult to read. In LB-029 and LB-030, for example, there are 
numerous letters that are partially or entirely unreadable because of spreading 
or smearing ink. Many of the pages in LB-059 and in subsequent books were 
written in very faint green ink. In addition, there are occasional pages that are 
wrinkled or torn. Letters presenting severe legibility problems have not been 

Copies of outgoing correspondence can also be found in the Document 
File in folders such as "Edison, T.A. - Outgoing Correspondence" and "Edison, 
T.A. - Employment - Outgoing Correspondence." Letters similar to those in 
the General Letterbooks appear in some of the letterbooks in the Company 
Records Series. See, especially, LM-025, Edison Phonoplex System Records; 
LM-245 and LM-247, New Jersey and Pennsylvania Concentrating Works 
Records; LM-306, Edison Manufacturing Co. Records.

1 appreciate very highly your kind acknolwdgments of my 
labors, end would be glad if it were in my power to grant the ree 
quest that you make of mu in rerard to naming onc of your moveroents 
the "Edison Watch®. 

During the past few years a Rreat MANy AAYKKKRS articles 
have beon placed upon the market, end my nam attached to then by 
unauthorized perties. In suppressing such actions as these i 
have always taken the stond that my. neme is used only in sonnec tion 
with my own inventions. It is neeossary that J should inuintain 
this position owing to the number of people who are qntercestca in 
inventions which 1 have placed upon the market. 

Lt is with mach reprot that I am obliged to refuse your 
request, as I appreciate tho feolings whi ch prompted you to make ite 
It would, however, ba inconsistent with the position which I have 

aidags assumed where my name has been connested with inve nitions 

other than my owe 

Arain thanking, you for the honor which you have paid me,

Letterbook, LB-025 

This letterbook covers the periods June 1887-January 1888 and August- 
November 1888. Many of the letters are by Edison. There is also 
correspondence by Alfred O. Tate and John F. Randolph. Included are letters 
relating to phonograph patent applications in the United Kingdom, electric 
light patents in France and Germany, and the marketing of the electric light 
in Asia. Other letters pertain to the ore separator and to the Edison 
phonoplex system. Included also are letters to Samuel Insull about the proper 
manner of representing Edison as a Surrogate and correspondence with A. B. 
Dick regarding an electric pen agreement. The front cover is marked "188[7?]" 
and is labeled "General Letters." The spine is stamped "Letters." The book 
contains 498 numbered pages and an index. There are also numerous groups 
of unnumbered pages inserted into the book between the numbered pages. 
Approximately 30 percent of the book has been filmed.

the subjoet which you suppres & harlaly admits of sufficient 
disavssion for the production of a iaumpanp article, There is ne 
dont vhatever, that Lightening vods are a  Souree of great protect} 
zon wlun buildings are Proporly equipped vin them. In doing this 
atis necessary only to have motal of good conductivity, and a 
Perfect connect ion with the earth at the bodtom ‘ee the rod, 
If you will refer to a book published by Sir. Waliiam Snow Harris, 
who first intr educea lightening rods’ in the British Navy and Mere 
cantila Marine, you will fina this sibject disonssed at Tongth. 
Rofore ‘the introduction of lightening’ rods in the british Nayy\dis « 
asters at sea were quite frequent, and the subject of protect ing 
thoir ships | ‘rom this elere nt of danger prosentod itself in a vory:

is conclusive proof ie Harris's theory was corree%. The sane 
apnlies to bnildings or other struetnres of an inflanable nature 
erected on land, aril whm these are properly supplied with a suff-

As I have statel to Mr. insull that his letter was dictate»

refer to the contents of his letter to me in such manner as they .

I consider that this is carrying the friendly war of 

business rolations a littlo too far, and thoughtlessness in rezard

My Dear Insull? 
I have your letter of the 22nd instant in ref'erence 
to Mr. Edison's signature, j . 

L think that you ought to be a little more carefulp in 
writing me letters of this nature. Inthe first place I deny 
absolutely that I made any attempt to imitate Mr. Edisons signature 
or that his name as I wrote it bore any resemblance to his auto- 
graph. It bears about as much FES eMP LANGE KES a landscape pa inting 
does to the Statue of Liberty; they are both works of art, but 
nothing further can be said in regard to them 

I have no doubt that when you wrote this letter you had 
an audience before whom you wished to display your powers of dic~- 
tation and criticissm, and while I have no objection whatever yo 
your posing as my censor for your own gratification, I think you 
should select an issue of a less serious nature than that which 
you manufactured when witing your letter under reply. I believe 
that you are the last person in the world yho would intentionally 
do me a personal injury, but you ought to remember that an affarr 
of this kind can b very easily be distorted and refelcted in an en- 

tirely different light from that in which you yourself intend to 
put it, I shall bring the matter tefore Mr. Edison myself , as

Letterbook, LB-026 

This letterbook covers the period August 1887-November 1888. Many 
of the letters are by Edison. There is also correspondence by Charles 
Batchelor, Alfred O. Tate, and John F. Randolph. Included are letters relating 
to ore separator patents in the United Kingdom, phonoplex sales in the United 
States and the United Kingdom, proposed central stations in J apan and Korea, 
and the international search for sources of bamboo for electric light filaments. 
Other letters pertain to Glenmont and to the construction of the West Orange 
laboratory. Some material concerns the finances and operations of the West 
Orange laboratory and the various Edison companies. The front cover is 
marked "1887-1888 Indexed." The book contains 482 numbered pages and an 
index. Pages 365-482 are blank. Approximately 30 percent of the book has 
been filmed.

Letterbook, LB-027 

This letterbook covers the period November 1888-January 1889. Most 
of the correspondence is by Edison and Alfred O. Tate. The letters relate 
primarily to the phonograph and the talking doll. Other material pertains to 
the construction and furnishing of the West Orange laboratory; the Edison 
phonoplex system; and the recall of Edison’s agent, Osgood S. Wiley, from the 
United Kingdom. Some letters deal with phonograph company stock 
transactions and with Edison’s financial assistance to his brother, William Pitt. 

There is also a list of Edison Lamp Company stockholders. The spine is’ 

stamped "Letters." The book contains 1,006 numbered pages and an index. 
Approximately 30 percent of the book has been filmed.

My Near Tate, = : 
This moming brought me your letter of yesterday, 
the 17th, .asking if I can fix a certain date in June ~ the day 
when I.¥as at the Laboratory and talked with you at length about 
the. “drop ‘nickeal® or’amuscas:t® phonograph; and hen TomLineon, 
Gillilend ant Lippineott wero ghostted vith Mr. Edison. By ree 
“ference to bills and other papers, I am able to fix the date almost 
-oxedtly.: I was in New-York-only twiee in June. The firat time 
/ Wag~from June 6th to.June léth;’ and the 24 time was June 224 and 
. dune 33d, . Thisznecond time I went out to the Laboratory and say 
Rdison for a few’minutes, That was tha cecasion when he told ne 
“there was to be a aonferenca with Tomlinson, Gilliland and Lippin~ 
aott the next day . oo «© eo OY perhaps he told me tha conferenye 
‘was to be later in that. seme day. I think I ran out to the Lab, 
again that arme day, or the next, Loping to see T.,.G.. md Edizon 
together, tut they were then buay with the conferenge and I did 
not’ see my of them. oo oo « »o I did not go to the lab. agsin 
‘until the other day (Oqt. 20th). ’ Now this June 22a or 2%4 
may . the date you are leoking for; tt it is not the time I had 
. the long talk with you, which you refer to, while waiting for 
Edison to get through with 1T,,@. and Lippincott. That time was 
during the previous visit, between June 6th end June 13th. I fine 
thet I. wrote to Mrs. Lathrop from the Glenham.on the morning of 
June loth. ¢ o © o o ok had beénh expecting @ d@spateh from you 
‘about meating with Edion, G. &T., mt as it did't come, I paid 
my hotel bill. and. liegt on the 25th. I find a despatch from you 
dated June 14th, and sent to the Glenhom. . . . » As this ia dated 
the dey after I left it must haye pean sent on to mé by mail from 
‘he Glenheam. All this fixes the time when I was at the Lab. and 
talked with you; for I remember I stayed in No Yo only a couple 

. Of days, after that, waiting to hear further from you. As you may 
recall I was urging that the parties in interest to the Amusement 
.' 60. ‘should. meet and consult; end'as they were all.on the grout 
‘then, I wanted a time fixed for such consultation. After a long 
" While Edimn,-T.,. G.-and Lippincott came out. Fdison said he’

- that ¢, ana tT. were nof going to ‘allow any consultation to take 
. Plaae,.and so I den Deck to New London on the 13th. ‘This makes it 
elmost::cortain that the day’ when 'I was at.the Lab. was Monday,

My Dear Insulls- 
We made some experiments recently with an iron 
ore that war sent us: from Allentown, Pa., by Mr. Ho Ke. Hartzell, 
Samoles were sent him of the results which we obtained, and he 
now writes us under date 24th instant, to the effect that the 
‘ remit of consentratigg his ore has been satisfactory, end wishes 
to know upon What basis he. oan obtain a concentrator. Mr. Edison 
aueeeta that the machine and appliances be furnished at cost, and 
R royalty charged of 15 cents por. ton. of ‘gonoentrate g. For your 
Snfornation L may say that, other concentrators can be obtained, 
: more. particularly the Conkling process, ata royalty to the iueea 
ef about. six cénta per ton, od ‘the question may be asked, why we 
should be paid 15 cents per ton. In replying to this qiestion 
we can say that our machine will Jette qnnes units more iron in 

concentrates than any other machine. As iron ia salable at ten 

eants per unit, this shows up: 30 céntes per ton in favor of our 
machine imnodievely. The great output of Mr, Edison's process 

mUuat al aD te donsidered, together with the tact that there ate 

no wearing parte, end the maghine requires very Little attention 

and. small anount of power, Mr. Edison states that he can furn ish

Mr. Hartzell, and will do nothing further until I hear from you.

In reference to your Letter of lst instant, 
enclosing copy of a gommunication from Lookport, Ne Yos ae ing as 
to the durability of copper wire for are Light circuits. 3 My 
opinion is, that if the are piveant is a continous one, the 
copper itself will last indefinitely. If alternating currents 
are used, it will probably pecome rotten, by reason of ov ystali-~ 

zavion, in a few years.

Your letter of Deg, 20th addressed to Mr,

In regard to the phonograph doll, I beg to refer you to the

Por all information soneerning same, 

In referenge to running the phonograph on electrig Light 

cirquits, to do this the motors would have to pe specially woumti. 

There would be no trouble in winding them, however, and when the 

Phonograph is placed upon the market if the publie shoulda demand 
machines that they sould mm on such airqites, we presume that 
they. will be supplied with them,

I wish to inform you that a reporter for some Newark paper, the

day with a report of a aonsolidetion which ino luded the Mach ine

Works and the Edison Laboratory, X did not consider it right to 
have the Phonogra@h Yorks mixed up in the patents and I told the -

thet Mr, Mdison’s Laboratory was his private property. I wowld 
not give him my information in regard to the reat of his report,

Dear Sirst~ 

I am in reseipt of your letter of 8th instant, in 

regard tw the Mexican patent question, and huve consulted Mr. 

Edison us to the advisability of renogniazing these twa Mexicnn 

patents py the payment of tne Peer die thereon, which, I under- 

stand Pram your Letter, amount to $300. Mr. Fdison thinks. that 

ag the U. S&S, applications whish correspond with thene twa Nexicnr 

coetents are not important, wa may as wall sesure the letter by f 

paying the feces. The esmount should be telegraphed to Mr. Iuis

Letterbook, LB-028 

This letterbook covers the period January-April 1889. Most of the 
correspondence is by Edison and Alfred O, Tate. Many of the letters relate 
to the marketing of the phonograph in Europe, Latin America, and Asia. 
Other material pertains to the production of the perfected phonograph at 
West Orange, the marketing of the talking doll, the establishment of central 
stations in the United Kingdom and Germany, the Edison phonoplex system, 
and the Edison exhibit at the 1889 Paris Exposition. There are also letters 
concerning Edison’s efforts to obtain British patents for his ore separator and 
to acquire manufacturing rights to the Lalande battery. The spine is labeled 
"From Jan 30, 1889 To April 8, 1889 No I." and "Letterbook 1889 Jan. 30 
to April 8 G." The book contains 1,002 numbered pages and an index. 
Approximately 40 percent of the book has been filmed.

My Dear MeGowani- 

We have reacived sll your reeent letters, 


T was very much surpricad when fon conmeneed to complain abont 

not Raving received Letters from us. In one of yom ourmunisation 

wich reached us last fall, you atated that you were going off into 

areata eee 

the mountains, on a trip wrieh woulé consume tyo or three months, 
and during which period you wauld se outside of elvilisation. i 
was unaware where you waule turn up again, an&d consequently dia 
not know where to send your mil. In addition to this, Mre Rdison 
had nothing in particrlar to say to yon, and I presumed that the 
general instrmectionsa which were given you when you lett tris ‘gotn- 
try were sufficiait Por yaur puidamee. However, in the Mture I 
will writo you pertodisally und give you the news, as it must 
pretty tough to he sy far away from your friends and heer nothing 
from them. 

We received about a week ayo samples of material, the sarh 

neing the 83 pioeses mentioned in two or three of your letters. Hr. 

Raion has been ao latsy with the phonograph, that he hes not hac an 

opportunity to teat these, antl until he dodge o I cannot say what 


re NsGae ; wie 

his wishes ara in regard to the course which you ure to pursue in 

the future, He promiser me that he will inepeot these senpley 

within a very few daye, 
tT heave not sent the things which yan asked me to arder for 
you, b¢omise it is possible that Mr. Fdiswn may went you to return 
hana irvediately, in which vase they would not have time to reath 
you, Tre instant L know what tir wishes are in this doiniereiot, 
I will vene the thinga cow to you by the fastest routs possipie. 
It is so long singe you left here, that I do not know mere 

to eturt in to maxe you faniliar with contemporary history. I 

will cormenec, however, with electrio lighting interestn. 

RLROTRIC LIGHT, A new corporation aalled the “*Fdisn General 
Pleetric Gorpany,” with Mr. He. Willard and hiz 
friends at its head, has been organized, with capital af twelve 
million collars, to take over the Kdison Flectric Light Qorpany, 
grt the three shoys, which of course ineluden the United Compan y+ 
A lot of fresh capital is to te put into the business, and Ediwn 
Clactric Lighting interests are to te vigorously pushed. IL think 
that the plan of operation is, to go into the larze cities of the 
United States, and instead of soliciting local cap ital for the 
purpose of ereating Central Stations, the Fdion General Flectrio 

Sompany will put the Stations up with its own op ital, “hia aill 

give them hn inmengo nivemtage over the dy gormpotitora, who navo

“we take the sample to be assayed and put about a table

to separate them); then the product is niftea through a

spread very thinly over a paper, and with-a small hand 
magnet which we cover with tisme paper so to: enable me 
to take the iron off exsily, we separate the iron, leavine: 
the dust; the Lron'we spread out and separate two or - 
three times acvordins to the amount of dat and silica. 
enntained and then go over the dust arain to fet the 

iron out (usually find some in the dust), then weigh the 
tron and @int separately ‘and allow for whet is loat, usu- 
ally about two, grains amd get the percentage of each. - The 
iron percentage multiply by 72.40 and’ get the metallic

Dear Sirt- — 
I have resetved your letter of the Gth instant., in 
regard to advances which you have made to Mr..0, S, Yiley. You 
have an entirely mistaken iden of this whole tsiness. Mr. Wiley 
vas sent Sy me ta London to ee out sartain definite ins truce’ 
tions which were siven hin before he left New York, in connec tion 
with an arrangerent which I had previously made with Mr. Drege. 
. Mr, Dredge received from one letter, instmoting him in ragatd to 
payments which wore to he mde to Mr. Wiley, on my pehals; and I 
desire to say right here that Mr Dredge has oarried out these 

instructions to the letter, that I have had no misunderstanding 

with him, and that the trouble which has ogcurred has heen en- 
tirely tho fils of Mr, Wiley. A short time after he arrived in 

England I found that he had overdrawn his account some sixty pounds 

Those nixty pounds were advanced to him by you, at the aime time 

nadir Sm hy sg, 

Col. G. F, G, 

that he was receiving money from Ha, Dredge. . Lwrote Mr. Wiley 
for an explanation, and he retwensd a very thin excuse in regard 
to exensos which he had to Arey for cabs on nosount of his being 
unfamilioer with the chs ae of prerre whi ch was really: no expia= 
nation at all. I ther eupon wrote to Mr. Dredge to reduse Mr, 
“iley's allowance to an amount which was quite sufficient for him 

ad Til 
to Live a alia in London, my inte ntion being to credit his 

ac emint with the nalance of his allorance, and thus absorb the 
overdraft re verred to and have him pay back the indebtedness in 
thee mamer. At the same time L notified Mr. Yiley of this ar~ 
rangement. In direct srpoeiien to the instructions given him, 
Mr Wiley drew ani me the other day for fifty pounds, and I 
inmed£ ataly eabled Mr. ‘Dredge to hand this young man a ticcet for 
New York and suffictont money for his current expenses, and cakled 
Wiley to return home at once. 
So far as I wan. tell from this distance, Mr. Wiley sppears ta 
have simply. pan ea wild in London, and us®his connection with my- 
self for the purpose of raising all. the money he 0 ould obtain from 
my friends, Mr, Wiley ‘wee not required to pay out ay money, Cx= 
copting. for his own oxpenses. All other expenses were provided 

for by my arrangement with Mr. Dredge, which was a yery perfect 

one, he being ontirely familiar with my wishes.
